A humor lie

Q: Is it a sin to tell a lie as a joke/fun?

A: If he gives information wanting the addressed person to think of it as real information, it is ḥarām. However, if one does not intend it seriously and does not want to misinform others, e.g. he quotes something from a person/an animal as joke/fun, it is not ḥarām.
